Incomplete notes from Sunday’s @Arduino course led by @bbq_d at @PioneerWorks_


My friend Alex Steinberg (@EdTechAlex) from The Churchill School recommended an Intro to Arduino programming course led by his friend Dave Sheinkopf (@bbq_d), Director of Education at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn. After having taken the 4-hour course this past weekend, I too can vouch for Dave’s expertise and enthusiasm. His next class is December 7, and like Alex, I totally recommend taking it: http://classes.pioneerworks.org/collections/classes/products/physical-computing-with-arduino-an-intro-to-interactive-electronics-may-session

Dave covered a ton of information in 4 hours. We wired analog and digital inputs and outputs and wrote some short yet powerful programs in the Arduino environment (similar to C++). My incomplete notes are here. The two pieces of software we installed for the course are here:
1. Arduino 1.0.5 http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
2. FTDI Virtual Com Port Driver http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

Here’s a gallery of photos from the class below…
